El Primer Mundo Cigars strives to be a testament to the pride, commitment, and heritage of the people that bring us the fine premium cigars that we enjoy at will. Nations typically classified as under-developed countries are the true heart and soul of tobacco. The finest tobacco in the world is undoubtedly being grown in countries, such as: The Dominican Republic, Cuba, Nicaragua, Brazil, and Ecuador. These countries without question are The First World for tobacco, thus the name 'El Primer Mundo'. As one tours the tobacco fields, curing barns and factories in these countries the pride and care that goes into producing a fine hand rolled cigar is truly humbling.
